Aspirin – a new osteoporosis drug

A study published almost a decade ago made the bold claim that aspirin may be a novel drug for osteoporosis. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21600123 However, the study did not get much traction and was in fact mocked by medical professionals since mainstream medicine considered the known anti-estrogenic effects of aspirin to be incompatible with a bone-protective effect. The … Read more Aspirin – a new osteoporosis drug

Aspirin now officially recommended for pre-eclampsia, pre-term birth, and birth defects prevention

After almost a century of evidence in favor of aspirin, combined with complete failure to develop other pharmacological interventions (and believe me, Big Pharma tried hard) mainstream medicine seems to be growing desperate enough to start recommending aspirin to ALL pregnant women as prevention of (pre)-eclampsia, pre-term birth, and birth defects. The pilot recommendation is … Read more Aspirin now officially recommended for pre-eclampsia, pre-term birth, and birth defects prevention

Aspirin/salt for treating a broken heart, and what REALLY causes Afib

At a first glance the study below seems rather mundane but a careful read provides some very interesting insights. The syndrome of “broken heart” is a real physiological condition that medicine has tried to deny for decades despite even assigning it its own official medical name – Takotsubo Syndrome (TS). People grieving over the loss … Read more Aspirin/salt for treating a broken heart, and what REALLY causes Afib

Aspirin safe and effective for prevention AND treatment of migraine

A human study, which dispels the myths that migraine is yet another “mysterious” disease with an unknown cause and no effective treatment. Considering the role of serotonin in migraines, it  adds to the evidence that aspirin is a potent anti-serotonin agent in higher doses. The good news is that even lower doses in the 81mg … Read more Aspirin safe and effective for prevention AND treatment of migraine

Aspirin may treat brain aneurysms

Another huge win for aspirin, not only because of the condition’s lethality, but because there is currently no treatment for it. While the study did not last long enough to make such claims, given the potent inhibitory effect on aneurysm growth I would not be surprised if aspirin actually makes aneurysms disappear. The authors of … Read more Aspirin may treat brain aneurysms

Acidosis (Warburg Effect) drives cancer through increased fat oxidation (Randle Cycle)

The evidence continues to pile on that naming the (in)famous observation made by Otto Warburg in regards to cancer an “effect” is one of the most profound falsehoods the medical profession has ever concocted. Almost a century after the Warburg “Effect” term was coined, the evidence rapidly accumulates that the lactic acidosis is not at … Read more Acidosis (Warburg Effect) drives cancer through increased fat oxidation (Randle Cycle)

Aspirin may protect lungs from air pollution

It seems that there is nothing mighty aspirin cannot do. Just recently, I posted about its ability to treat (and, more importantly, potentially have curative effect) erectile dysfunction (ED) at least as effectively as established drugs such as Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, etc. yet with much fewer side effects. Aspirin as effective as Viagra for ED, … Read more Aspirin may protect lungs from air pollution

Aspirin as effective as Viagra for ED, but with much fewer side effects

Yet another blockbuster drug may turn out to be nothing more than a well-marketed gimmick, which while not entirely a scam can be replaced with cheaper, safer alternatives that also have much lower potential for side effects. The drug in question is Viagra, and the humble, just-as-effective substitute is aspirin. A group of doctors out … Read more Aspirin as effective as Viagra for ED, but with much fewer side effects

Aspirin now officially recommended for (colon) cancer prevention

It is only in the UK for now, but given how intertwined the health systems of most Western countries are I suspect it will soon spread to other health systems. Also, while the popular press article claims that the recommendation will only be for people with a specific genetic condition, the NHS UK website announcement … Read more Aspirin now officially recommended for (colon) cancer prevention

Aspirin now proposed as treatment for brain cancer

The news on treating cancer as metabolic disease just keep on coming. This new study discusses a “novel” drug based on aspirin as a potential treatment for brain cancer. Its only other (inactive) ingredients are triacetin and saccharin. The rationale for creating this bizarre “new” drug are apparently the widely publicized (but untrue) gastrointestinal side … Read more Aspirin now proposed as treatment for brain cancer
